She’s in… Two Worlds Collided @KMNbooks #timetravel #8sunday #snippetsunday

two-worlds-collided_newlook3Welcome to Snippet Sunday! This is a snippet from Two Worlds Collided. Only 99¢ for a short time. I really loved Evie and Bellamy's story. I hope you will too.

LOOKING FOR last week's SNIPPET from Chapter Three: Snippet #2

Now for Chapter 3  - Building Bridges Snippet #3

About this snippet: We're skipping ahead a few paragraphs.

Recap of last week's snippet: Bellamy didn't like that his bandmates hired Evie to babysit him. His ploy to make her quit backfired on him when she saw right through his charade. She told him she needed the job and he needed someone to keep him on time. It was a win-win for both of them. She's now waiting for his answer.

Now for the snippet. There are some tweaks in punctuation.

*****************************************************************************************************************

"Deal," Bellamy finally voiced, "I wouldn't want you to starve on my account." He headed for the door but turned back with his hand on the doorknob. "You certainly are a surprise, Miss Book Marm."

Miss Book Marm? Not exactly a compliment, but truly did she expect him to see her as a sexy attractive woman? Even though she knew it, he confirmed she wasn't his type. "Well, so are you," she threw back and he chuckled, and this time his smile was warm and genuine.

"I'll make sure Leon gives you the itinerary."

She didn't take a full breath until he had closed the door behind him. She was in.

*****************************************************************************************************************

Bellamy accepted her presence and Evie will have her shot at changing his future.

This will have to be my last snippet for Two Worlds Collided. Thank you so much for reading and commenting and thank you so much for those who read the story and left a review. Much appreciated. 🙂

I'll have something different next week. 🙂

Blurb for Two Worlds Collided: (Time Travel, rating: 17+ years and older)

Evie Reid on a whim agrees to travel back in time to change bad boy Bellamy Lovel's path of destruction. She's smart with a college degree, but she is still fan-girl crazy for the rock band, Civilized Heathens. Evie knows despite all Bellamy's smiles and enthusiasm on the stage, he's destined to end it all on one lonely night in a hotel room unless she can change his path.

Bellamy isn't keen on having Evie as his personal assistant, hired by his band mates to watch over him, and keep him on schedule. However, there is something about the woman that sparks his interest, despite his best to ignore her. When darkness threatens to consume him, he realizes she may be the only light that will chase the shadows away.

Do we have a deal?…. Two Worlds Collided @KMNbooks #timetravel #8sunday #snippetsunday

two-worlds-collided_newlook3Welcome to Snippet Sunday! This is a snippet from Two Worlds Collided. Only 99¢ for a short time. I really loved Evie and Bellamy's story. I hope you will too.

LOOKING FOR last week's SNIPPET from Chapter Three: Snippet #1

Now for Chapter 3  - Building Bridges Snippet #2

About this snippet: We're skipping ahead a few paragraphs.

Set up for this snippet: Bellamy shows up at Evie's room with a purpose. Evie figures out his ploy that he's trying to make her feel uncomfortable enough to want to quit, but she calls him on it. She tells him she's not leaving. She was hired to do a job and she is going to do it.

Now for the snippet. There are some tweaks in punctuation.

*****************************************************************************************************************

He placed the book down and those ever-expressive eyes burned with what she supposed was anger. "I don't need a babysitter, despite what Leon told you."

Ah, so now we have it; his pride had been sorely nicked. "Good, because I don't want to be one. Listen, maybe we can work together here. I need this job." He didn't have to know it was because she needed to stay close to him and hopefully say something or do something that would influence him to want to live. "I have bills to pay," she added, "and you have a grueling schedule where you need to be on time, so allow me to assist you in doing that and we'll all go home happy at the end of the day."

He drummed his hand on the top book, which happened to be book one in the Harry Potter series. Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, the UK edition given to her by her brother. Who knew how widely popular the series would eventually become, and in 2007, she was anxiously waiting for the final book in the series to be released.

*****************************************************************************************************************

Will he take the deal or not? Find out next week.

It won’t work…. Two Worlds Collided @KMNbooks #timetravel #8sunday #snippetsunday

two-worlds-collided_newlook3Welcome to Snippet Sunday! This is a snippet from Two Worlds Collided. Only 99¢ for a short time. I really loved Evie and Bellamy's story. I hope you will too.

LOOKING FOR last week's SNIPPET from Chapter Two: Snippet #9

Now for Chapter 3  - Building Bridges Snippet #1

About this snippet: We're skipping ahead a few paragraphs.

Set up for this snippet: Bellamy shows up at Evie's room and invites himself in. His impromptu arrival has her curious. He inspects her things–her open suitcase for starters– and adds his opinions along with some clipped random questions. She knows there is a point to this visit. She just has to keep her cool and figure it out.

Now for the snippet. There are some tweaks in punctuation.

*****************************************************************************************************************

Looking over her reading material was far worse than him fondling her undergarments and her face heated. He placed his sunglasses on the top of his head. "You have quite the selection here," he said and turned to look at her and this time, his gaze had changed, not hostile, but curious. "You're a Buddhist?" he asked and picked up the book, Yoga: Meditation for the Mind, Body, and Soul.

"No," she said, "when I'm stressed, I like to meditate and some of the yoga poses help me to relax."

"Hmm...maybe you are my type after all. I'd like to see you do some of those yoga poses...naked, preferably." The lustful gleam in his eyes made her blush, but she refused to fall victim to this game he was obviously playing. Then she realized his motive; he was purposely trying to make her feel uncomfortable.

"It won't work," she said and he arched a brow at her.

*****************************************************************************************************************

Caught. Wonder what Bellamy will say next.

Sneak Peek...
Her gaze landed once more on the letters printed on the door, stating roof access and the implications of Bellamy being up here registered as a warning bell in her mind. Dear Lord, why had they allowed such a thing in his unstable condition? Then she realized the band didn't suspect he was suicidal. They believed he had a drug and alcohol problem he was trying to kick.

Leon opened the door and they took a flight of stairs to another door and opened it. The bright sunlight blinded her at first until her vision adjusted. She spotted Bellamy standing on the ledge a few feet in front of her. Fear rose up inside of her like a tangible force that urged her to go to his rescue. Her legs carried her swiftly and her hands grabbed his dress shirt with some kind of wild print on it, and she yanked him toward her.

Bellamy's hands flew out in front of him as if to grab onto something to steady his fall. "What the–" Her cry of alarm muffled Bellamy's curse when she realized he was going to land on top of her, but at the last millisecond, Bellamy twisted, grabbing hold of her as he fell onto his back with her sprawled on top of him in an unseemly manner. Her hair had come loose from the knot at the back of her neck. Her glasses were askew on her nose and she tried to adjust them as she pulled on her blouse, which had risen above her waste. Bellamy's hot hands were on her flesh and for a moment she'd forgotten to breathe. She met his startled gaze and his lips pursed into a fine line.

"What is wrong with you, lady?" he said and shoved her away, not exactly rough but with a purpose to be as far away as possible from her.

She sat in a heap next to him, feeling a bit deflated that he didn't appreciate her attempt to help. "I was saving you," she said and lifted her chin.

"Saving me? Lady, you almost sent me tumbling over the edge."

"I most certainly did not," she sputtered. "And what were you doing up there, anyway? Who stands on a ledge and not think: Hey, I might fall to my death." She rolled her eyes and that seemed to set him off.

His nostrils flared and he looked like he wanted to say more on the matter, but then he turned toward Leon, who stood there with his arms folded against his chest and his lips appeared to be twitching as if he were holding back a full out smile.

"You need to fire the security guard," Bellamy stated, "that allowed this crazy broad up here." He flew to his feet and brushed off his white pants that were smudged with dirt from the gravel rooftop. He flipped his curly hair away from his bright and beautiful blue eyes. God, he was handsome. A lean five-foot-ten, he appeared taller than he truly was, or maybe it was because she was still sprawled at his feet.

Leon cleared his throat. "Bellamy, I want you to meet your personal assistant."

It took Bellamy a moment to realize what Leon meant, and then he shook his head. "No. Absolutely, no." He narrowed his eyes on her, and she scrambled to her feet as graceful as she could, considering how she ended up there.

"I'm Evie Reid." She extended her hand.

He stared at her outstretched palm for a second then leveled his gaze on Leon. "I don't need a personal assistant, and especially one who thinks attacking a person is a great tactic to get to know each other." He turned on his heels, and murmured something in Romanian, which she knew he spoke since his parents were both from there. She loosely translated it as Crazy chicks are not my thing.

"Well yeah," she shouted back. Then decided to play his game and spoke in Romanian too. "Good thing I'm not crazy then." Loosely translated of course, but that seemed to catch his attention for about a second. He turned around and met her gaze in what she believed was supposed to intimidate her, but she refused to look away. "Giving me the evil eye doesn't work." She stared back and he dropped his gaze first.

He harrumphed and grumbled something that she was sure hadn't been flattering, and continued on his way to the door that would lead him back inside the hotel.

"Well, that went splendidly," she muttered. "Why was he up here anyway?"

"Sorry, should have warned you. It's his thing. When we're about to begin a tour, he heads for the roof of the first hotel we stay at, to meditate and put him in the right mindset, or so he says." His shoulders lifted in a shrug. "For good luck, I guess," he added.

"And I just messed that up."

"Don't worry, I have hope he'll warm up to you. You did speak Romanian to him, right? Usually, he's thrilled."

Maybe, she thought, but not if he believed she was crazy.

Civilized Heathens Greatest Hits2

Q&A

Q. Where did the idea for this book come from?
A. My daughter and I watched INXS live at Wembley on TV. We were sad to think the lead singer, Michael Hutchence, had died so tragically and there would never be another song written by him. The time travel tale about Bellamy Lovel took root, but I wanted a happier ending for my rock star and sent Evie back in time to try and save him.

Q. What draws you to this genre?
A. No one knows for sure if time travel is possible, but authors have sent their heroes and heroines to the past and to the future with one stroke of a pen. The idea of time travel has always intrigued me with the question of “what if?” The possibilities are endless.

Meet your personal assistant… Two Worlds Collided #timetravel @KMNbooks #8sunday #snippetsunday,

two-worlds-collided_newlook3Welcome to Snippet Sunday! This is a snippet from Two Worlds Collided. Released Oct. 22! Only 99¢ for a short time. I really loved Evie and Bellamy's story. I hope you will too.

LOOKING FOR last week's SNIPPET from Chapter Two: Snippet #6

Now for Chapter Two - Body Language Snippet #7

About this snippet: We're skipping ahead a few paragraphs.

In the last snippet, on the roof, Evie spotted Bellamy on the ledge and charged to his rescue. She's feeling a bit deflated that he doesn't appreciate her attempt to save his life. Bellamy accuses her of almost tumbling him over the edge. She, of course, tells him she most certainly did not try to do such a thing.

Now for the snippet. There are some tweaks in punctuation. Evie is speaking first.

Talk about falling for someone… Two Worlds Collided #timetravel @KMNbooks

two-worlds-collided_newlook3Welcome to Snippet Sunday! This is a snippet from Two Worlds Collided. Released Oct. 22! Only 99¢ for a short time. So excited about this release. I really loved Evie and Bellamy's story. I hope you will too.

About this snippet: We're skipping ahead to where Evie and Bellamy officially meet.

Evie and Leon head to the roof where Bellamy is. Evie is worried as to why Bellamy is up there and is wondering why his band mates aren't concerned until she realizes they wouldn't know he was thinking of ending it all.  To them, it's just Bellamy wanting some alone time.

There are some tweaks in punctuation.

Now for Chapter Two - Body Language Snippet #5

In last weeks snippet, Evie and Leon are on the elevator, but Leon hasn't pushed the button to a floor yet as he tells Evie about Bellamy's condition. Evie asks Leon if there's anything she should know about Bellamy besides keeping him on schedule.

There are some tweaks in punctuation. Leon is speaking first.

*****************************************************************************************************************

"He can be wild and fun, but he's also vulnerable. He's had a few bad relationships and he hasn't been the same since he lost his father. I've known Bellamy for a long time and his smile doesn't reach his eyes if you know what I mean."

She did know what he meant, more so than Leon realized. "I'll be a friend if he wants one."

"Hmm...he may not be warm and cuddly about having you around. Just a warning, but I'm hoping you'll be able to keep him on schedule. He's notorious for forgetting where he's supposed to be on a good day, and now..." he said and let out a tired sigh.

"Understood."

Leon looked like he wanted to say more, but then turned and pushed the button on the panel and the elevator jerked into motion.
*****************************************************************************************************************

Bellamy has had some hard knocks lately. Good thing Evie is aware of most of them, but reading about it is one thing. Meeting the man who lived through the events is another. Sometimes being wild and fun is only a facade so no one sees the truth.

Blurb for Two Worlds Collided:

Evie Reid on a whim agrees to travel back in time to change bad boy Bellamy Lovel's path of destruction. She's smart with a college degree, but she is still fan-girl crazy for the rock band, Civilized Heathens. Evie knows despite all Bellamy's smiles and enthusiasm on the stage, he's destined to end it all on one lonely night in a hotel room unless she can change his path.

Bellamy isn't keen on having Evie as his personal assistant, hired by his band mates to watch over him, and keep him on schedule. However, there is something about the woman that sparks his interest, despite his best to ignore her. When darkness threatens to consume him, he realizes she may be the only light that will chase the shadows away.
